Murrieta, CA |
New to the area we needed to find a new ophthalmologist office since my husband has severe glaucoma. We were enrolling in new insurance and had read reviews that Dr. LoBue was the best in the area, we believe this to be true from our experience from beginning to end. We originally called the office to see what plans were accepted we spoke to Billing they suggested an accepted insurance plan and they were very helpful. We saw Dr. Miller and we were very impressed with the office & staff.

All doctors and staff are courteous and respectful. I got lost on the drive over and over the phone received step by step how to get to the Menifee location. Front receptionist was very kind as well as technician. I've heard from family members that have seen Dr. Evans and Dr. LoBue they both take the time to answer any and all questions regarding the health of our eyes, to which I saw Dr. Aslami and was true. Glasses were an affordable price and great choices at the Menifee location was a plus.

The doctor is nice, the surgery went well HOWEVER I experienced problems after the surgery. His appointment setter blew me off, said my problem was common. I called at least 15 times trying to get an a'-ointment. I didn't go to the ER because Iwan't in pain.I stupidly believed her and lost my vision in my left eye.

I have been going to this office since 2008,I am very unhappy with the treatment I have received in regards to my vision.I never met Dr.Lobue until 2016,there was no eye contact ,which means I donot trust him.He did not discuss my condition with me.He told me you have advanced glaucoma on your left eye.I was told by a Dr Kim,if I I had a tube input in my left eye,it would not progress,but it did.He is Lobue's referral Dr.I donot trust these people,therefore I am going to change my Ins.

dr.lobue did not care about what is best for my eyes only about money. His staff is also rude and hateful...UNHAPPY with my eye surgery for Cataract. He does not take time to tell or explain eye conditions very unhappy I not have a new doctor for my second eye surgery
